"Cool Markets" for GHG Emission Reduction in a Warming World: Evaluation of World Bank Group’s Support to Carbon Finance (Approach Paper)

PDF file
Carbon finance (CF) has been one of the Bank Group’s first and longest engagements for mitigating climate change. Carbon finance as a subcomponent of climate finance is a generic term used for the revenue streams that can be generated by sale of project-based GHG emission reductions or from payments involving carbon sequestration and storage from forests.

Carbon finance as a subcomponent of climate finance is a generic term used for the revenue streams that can be generated by sale of project-based GHG emission reductions or from payments involving carbon sequestration and storage from forests. The World Bank Group launched CF with interest to support development of a global carbon market that will reduce the cost of achieving GHG emission reductions and facilitate sustainable development. The purpose of this evaluation is to assess the role and contributions of the WBG in CF in relation to the needs and priorities of its clients and its potential comparative advantages and draw lessons to inform the WBG’s strategic direction in CF. The evaluation will look at the four dimensions to assess the potential comparative advantages of the WBG in CF. On the WBG portfolio, the focus will only be on the CF portfolio and will not include the broad scope of climate finance. The primary audience for this evaluation is the WBG’s Board of Directors, senior management and staff involved in carbon finance, climate mitigation policy and related operations. Other stakeholders include the donor sponsors providing trust funds to the WBG. These stakeholders will have an incentive to know about the performance and effectiveness of the carbon finance activities, the key drivers of success, how those drivers changed over time, and how future operations can be improved. The evaluation will also be of interest to climate policy evaluation specialists and researchers as well as policymakers and regulatory agencies who want to understand the impact of WBG operations on international carbon finance and how carbon finance operations or similar GHG mitigation policies could be made more effective. Bilateral and multilateral institutions may also be interested to know about what works in carbon finance. Host country governments, civil society and NGOs will also have an interest in this evaluation, especially in terms of how such interventions contribute to reducing GHG emissions and create opportunities for sustainable social and economic development at different levels.

IEG Review of Results and Performance of the World Bank Group 2017 With a Special Focus on Environmental Sustainability (Concept Note)

PDF file
Results and Performance of the World Bank Group (RAP) is the annual review of what IEG evaluations reveal about the effectiveness of the World Bank Group (WBG), which includes IBRD/IDA, IFC, and MIGA, in addressing development challenges.

The report synthesizes evidence from IEG evaluations and learning products complemented by relevant information from other sources (e.g., WBG corporate documents). RAP 2017 will be the eighth in a series that began in 2010, and it is the fifth one since IEG adopted the approach of focusing on a specific theme, “Environmental sustainability”. In this report, IEG will draw on both this work and its body of project level evaluative evidence with additional desk-based analyses to provide an overarching picture of how the WBG is addressing environmental sustainability.
